The table below highlights how the PGMOL management have changed their strategy with regard to referee appointments to Premier League games.
Martin Atkinson and Michael Oliver are both delivering first class performances on a regular basis and both are in form are receiving more frequent appointments.
I would like to see both Paul Tierney and Chris Kavanagh used more, given the quality of performances that they have delivered this season.
The list however highlights the need for an end of season shake up and the introduction of new referees onto the list. What was the point of appointing Simon Hooper to one game or creating the Select Group 2.
PGMOL you really do need to speed up your succession planning – if you have one.
